Sometimes a HUGE miss i.e. the Volkswagen emissions scandal of 2015. Can you say, yikes?

    Let’s paint some familiar pictures, shall we?

    1) You’re at the bar and you’re feeling adventurous. You want to try something different than your go-to, but risking that $12+ price tag doesn’t always seem worth it when you don’t know if this new cocktail is going to work for you.

    Remember that awful time in history called The Prohibition? That time when people couldn’t drink in America (pun intended)? Well, unlike most of the US who got back on the horse after 13 years, Chicago took a while to recover from it. Almost 100 years to recover, to be exact.

    Anyone that has traveled abroad knows that after a few weeks away from the good ole’ US of A, you start to miss it like crazy.
